Frost Nips
Basin Area
A general and unusually severe
frost last night did considerable
damage to young spud and grain
crops in Uie Klamath basin and
farmers are watching their fields
today to see just how bad the dam
age might be.
The frost was general all over the
Mcrrill-Malln-Tulelake area and un
official reports said the temperature
got down to 27 at Tulelake and 28
at Malin. Here in Klamath Falls
the CAA's low recording was 33, one
degree above freezing.
Farmers at Stronghold said that
the ground at Uie Tulelake home
stead section waswhite with the
frost, leaving blackened potato vines
and hurting the barley which is Just
heading out.
Nj good estimate can be made yet
of the damage and the crops may
pull through all right. Last year
there was a frost not so general
in scope on July 1 Uiat did not
materially harm Uie crops.
Some fields which were Irrigated
Just last night were frozen this

tSenator Brewster (H-Mel today
called for a "full Inquiry" Into why
the navy must import millions of
barrels of oil from Arabia while
Kussian tankers are carrying U. 8.
petroleum away from West coast
porta.
Meanwhile Chairman Welehel (It
Ohio) of the house merchant ma
rine committee introduced a bill
which would make curbs in oil ex
perts mandatory in time of short
age, tnder existing legislation, the
controls are at the president's
deacrction.
Brewster said he would follow up
wltn a resolution to authorize an
investigation of Uie whole oil short
age quesUon by the senate com
merce committee.
Arrangement Made
John L. Sullivan, undersecretary
of Uie navy, wrote the senate war
mvesugatlng committee Uiat the
navy has had to arrange to Import
500,000 barrels of fuel oil a month
for Uie next six months from Uie
Persian gulf area.
He said this la necessary to bring
East coast stocks, by fall, to "a po
sition compatible with the navy's
obligations from naUonal security."
Sullivan described Uie .price of
11.05 a barrel as "Uie current pre
vailing price for oil In Uiat area."
Brewster, who is chairman of Uie
committee, issued ft statement last
night saying:
"On April 16, 1941. the American
Arabian Oil company offered Uie
navy 3,400.000 barrels at 40 cents a
barrel. The navy said it didn't take
lt then because it was not ready
and that the oil had an excessive
sulphur content. The navy has said
It was wrong on the sulphur. This
is Uie same oil."

Pension Plan
Gets Praise
DETROIT, June 28 (P Richard
T. Leonard of the CIO United
Auto Workers estimated today that
the precedental Ford Motor com
pany pension plan would enable
a $300-a-month productions worker
to retire at half pay after 30 years.
Leonard, vice president of the
UAW-CIO and director of its Ford
department, revealed major details
of the pension plan, the first of its
kind in a major automotive pro
ducing plant.
The tentative pension agreement,
announced Friday, supplements a
7-cent hourly wage boost granted
110,000 Ford production workers.
Leonard estimated that 95 per
cent of these employes are eligible
to participate in the pension plan
from its outset. The remainder
would become eligible after an un
specified number of months with
the firm.
He said retirement age had not
been agreed upon but probably
would be set between 55 and 65.

Potato Disease
Held Identified
CORVALLIS, June 28 (P) A mys
terious potato disease which ap
peared late last season and was
thought to be late breaking leaf roll
actually seems to be an entirely
separate disease: late breaking
virus. , . .,
That was the report of Dr. J .

"Experiments with the disease are
still continuing, they said.
But Profit Less
so does the value of the prize, and
Uie percentage of winning numbers
comes down. It's possible to win a
sporting rifle; a good fly reel, an
outboard motor or a decorative elec
tric clock on a punch board here In
town.
Some pay off In cash.
The boards all work on the sams
principle of pushing out a slip of
paper with a winner on lt, but oc
casionally the fertile brains of the
designers have literally gone to
town in devising ways to lure the
chary coin.
For instance, there's one that
gives you a partial poker hand to
start with. King, queen, Jack and
10 spot of one suit. Your object Is
to draw one card and try to fill out
a good hand. Anybody will draw,
to a straight flush, open on both
ends.
The payoff is at good figures 4
for 1 on any pair up to 20 for 1 If
you hit the right ace to make It a .
royal flush. Of course, you never
know how many slips the board

fit the hand. Looking at lt that
way, Uie odds might not be so good.
The fellow who wants to gamble
can get a fair shake for his money
at the horse parlors, where you can
place a wager of SI or more on a
horse running In most any race In
the country. You can bet the horse

when the results of the race corns

"The payoff Is absolutely honest,
on odds figured by the pari mutuel
take at the track. One disad
vantage Is that unless your horns
finishes In the money first, second
or third you don't know how hs
ran. If you were at the track you
could at least see what happened
to the beetle.

censed by the city and run openly
and straightforwardly, albeit at
good profit. No money shows on
the table nd people who know
